How has the New Year been for you so far as an artist?
this year has been so busy for me so far working on an album an ep in tandem along with singles along the way, I’m very excited for all the projects in the works and grateful to be working with all the people I am currently working with!
Can you tell us how you've transformed from the beginning to now as an artist?
It has been an emotional almost transcendental experience to say the least. I think within the past 5 years of doing music on and off again sort of as a pastime I’ve only now begun to understand the depths of my artistry and what it means to me. Crediting a lot of what’s been inspiring me lately to endings of long term relationships, healing family traumas and personal growth the journey is forever growing and my commitment to share with my listeners is stronger than ever before.
How did you come up with your latest project?
Currently I am working on an acoustic ep called “Closure” it’s essentially an ode to my ex for the closure (I never got) it’s my way of closing that chapter of my life off and expressing my feelings around the relationship. I usually come up with most songs from a single concept or a feeling/memory and sounds that tigger words and melody’s and from there a storyline is usually built into a full song.
Where are you from originally?
I was born in Toronto, Canada but frequently moved around GTA growing up.
Where do you live now?
Currently I live in a city just north of Toronto!
Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made?
Absolutely! I think the culture and what is deemed as “acceptable/popular” in your area has a large impact on how your music might be perceived by listeners. For example, trap seems to be very popular in Toronto but I can’t say I’m an avid listener of that genre of music. I for one can say that a lot of how I write eludes to what I listen to as a child which may or may not be always current in todays music and I’m totally okay with that! I love the classics and nostalgia that can be felt in pieces of music.
What was the inspiration to make music your career?
As cliche and subordinate as it may sound music is engraved in my veins when I hear a sound or instrument I can’t stop my brain from forming a melody or trigger words to spill out of me. It’s less about the success it may or may not bring, for me it’s just the natural thing to do. Like walking.
How do you want to shape your career?
I want to shape my career on the basis of being authentic to myself always! I never want to adhere to what other people think would make me more attractive or more this that. I hope to gather the ears of those who truly understand me and what I stand for, out of love and vulnerability.
Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music?
It’s always different. Sometimes I’ll work on specific projects for producer clients or for other artists as a writer and in those cases there’s usually a deadline involved. For my personal endeavours, sometimes the songs come into fruition very quickly id say within 10-15min I’ll have a basic structure of where I want the song to go and keep the ball rolling that way. Other times, the project needs to marinate and I’ll just chip away at it here and there until I’m happy with it :)
How did your latest title of your music come to be?
The latest single to be released is called “Heartbreaker” and honestly there’s no deep meaning to that one in particular. It’s truly just about someone who is a serial heart breaker who reels you in only to hurt you and my desire for the exact opposite of that.
Is it hard to let go of the music when it is done?
For me , not at all. To me it’s like a painting and once it’s done it’s out in the internet stratosphere for humans, ready to be consumed and judged , loved or hated. It’s open to interpret like a art hung in a museum wall and that kind of personal history is exciting to me.
Do you feel an emotional attachment to your music?
I think every project varies , some projects I have a very obvious emotional attachment to and others are laughable, something that I probably can go my lifetime without but proud I released.
How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet?
Where do they go to listen NOW?
You can listen to my music on all major streaming platforms !
What has been the best fan reaction to your music?
Not quite a reaction to a song in particular but I posted a video of one of my guitars breaking in the middle of a song writing session, it was quite sad .. a few weeks later I came home to a package with a guitar from a long lived fan/friend with a note attached saying don’t ever give, you and your journey are inspirational. That was probably the sweetest thing anyones ever done for me when it comes to the music.
Is there anything exciting coming up for you?
Yes so much ! Lots of releases coming and collaborations :)
Are you performing the song anywhere LIVE?
I am in the midst of planning a live set with my band, I’m thinking within the next few months into next year there will be some show announcements !
